Milender White Earns National Excellence in Construction Award

Milender White‘s work on the Rose Andom Center in Denver has earned the company a first-place national Excellence in Construction® Eagle Award from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) in the Community/Public Service Category. Representatives from the company received the award March 1 during ABC’s 27th annual Excellence in Construction awards celebration in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

“Associated Builders and Contractors is proud to honor Milender White with a best-in-class Excellence in Construction Eagle Award for their tremendous work in completing the Rose Andom Center safely, on time and budget,” said 2017 ABC National Chair Chuck Goodrich, president of Gaylor Electric Inc., Indianapolis. “The dedication to innovation, productivity and world-class craftsmanship demonstrated by Milender White and its employees produced truly impressive results that any project owner would be proud of.”

The Rose Andom Center is the Rocky Mountain region’s first wrap-around services center for victims of domestic violence, providing integrated support for survivors of partner violence and their families. In collaboration with the Denver Justice Council and the Mayor’s Office, the Center was built at an existing structure at 1330 Fox Street, a 75,759 sq. ft., three-story, precast concrete building.

Milender White with OZ Architecture planned and executed phased renovations, based on fundraising efforts, to transform the building into an attractive, environmentally efficient and safe and welcoming facility. The project included fully sprinkling the nonsprinkled building, replacing the mechanical system, upgrading the electrical system and replacing all windows at three elevations.

The Excellence in Construction awards program is the industry’s leading competition, developed to honor innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects, with an Eagle Award presented to the top project in each category. The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries submitted from across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.
